Well you can at least look at the contributions and when you see a
huge number of recent good contributions, check the talk page
history... and do extra warnings. It's not hard and you should be
checking contributions anyways.

I've never suffered harassment by an admin
although I have felt,
occasionally, that one or two are 'out to get you'. Some admins (which
leave un-named) aren't able to see a second
point of view, don't look in
things, and act before they think. I've seen
blocks logs where an admin
blocks an IP and ends up blocking 100 people, just because they didn't
into it. Some admins don't necessarily abuse
their powers, but are too
to use it. The issue when somebody is in their
RfA, of course, is that it
often hard to judge how that user will use their
powers - many change
ways after becoming an admin.
There is no real way of cheacking this in advance.
